An Insider's view of Wave

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Wave is the most positive job environment I've ever been in. Everyone I work with is very supportive of my work and my lifestyle (LGBTQ+). We enjoy being able to go to lunch together, hang out in Zoom after work, and collaborating on personal music and art projects. When you're Wave, you're family.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The music team at Wave is small but mighty. Success on our team requires folks to take initiative and step up as leaders, but also work efficiently as a team. We are authentic music lovers who operate with an artist-first mentality, but also balance insights from our Business Development and Marketing to ensure that we reach company goals together.
